My Religion

I'm currently a sophomore in college and I'm majoring in English with a minor in philosophy, possibly a minor in ASL, and a minor in religious studies. Due to my minor, I get to study many religions and their beliefs.
I grew up a Christian. I was a Christian for 15 years until my mother passed away. When she left, I became angry at God and left that religion far behind. My cousin introduced me to WICCA. I have looked into that religion extensively.
But I'm unsure of what I believe. I believe there is a higher power... It's hard for me to accept that we just are.

How does one live two lifestyles that contradict each other?

Just in general. If someone wants to, go ahead, but to me... I just don't see how it could work

I believe you can't be in two religions at one time. Sure, some aspects are shared, but there is a lot of conflicting beliefs.

I was just angry at God, but I didn't fall away until after I was introduced to WICCA.
To OneMagickalStepAtATime: I would thoroughly enjoy talking to you!

Looking back why maitian your anger at God when you know all people die sooner or later?

I read this a lot from many different people, they say their faith in God died when someone they loved died. I can understand why someone's grief could cause them to blaim God and be angery for a short time. But i cannot understand someone falling away from belief because of a death of a loved one.

It seems to me that people like this would fall away from any religion no matter what it was.
